Towing 5k travel trailer any recommended upgrades for easier towing?
WDH? I mean, other than that, you're only at 1/2 the capacity of the truck.
You should have no problem towing 5k and while a Raptor might be able to tow 10k like @Swacer said above with some modifications, remember the max trailer weight for a 2013 Raptor is 8k.
I have been up to 15,080lbs GCWR which is 380lbs over max with a 7k toybox and my Raptor was great doing so. No real issues climbing over the Sierra Pass in to NV.
I was sitting pretty level in the picture above and I run Deaver +3 with a load leaf (now known as HD) and Fox 3.0 shocks. Of course I have a weight distribution hitch and trailer brakes. I was over GVWR by about 600lbs. but didn't feel it at all..
I don't recommend going over the max limits but in my case I had no issues.
Where is a good place to get deavers?
I got mine through Westside Offroad Group out of LA back in 2015. If you are local to LA/Orange County you can go directly to Deaver in Anaheim, CA.
I'm in Canada
Keep in mind the tow rating for a Scab is 6000#.
Is 5K the gross weight or dry weight of your trailer? A lot of things add weight to a travel trailer. Is it a toy hauler or a basic camper? In fact, what's the year/model, etc?
